What the hell has happened to Wisdom of Water?
Three months ago the then Toby Edmonds trained two-year-old looked for all the world like a big race winner in the making.
It’s owners Aquis and their mate from Mongolia sent the horse down to Mick Price to aim it at the big three-year-old races over the spring, but after it’s first-up run at Flemington yesterday many are saying that a BM70 at Warracknabeal might be more the go, although just quietly I reckon that mighty be aiming a bit high.
Wisdom of Water folded up like an umbrella before they even reached the 400 metre mark in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes, then burst like a balloon, from that point on the much vaunted stallion prospect was running in reverse, and going fast too.
He got beaten 10 lengths.
It would have been 20 if they’d gone half a furlong more.
The vet couldn’t explain it.
Jockey Mark Zahra couldn’t either.
Has anyone got a spare stamp?
I want to send Hong Kong Tony a nom form for the Kilcoy Cannonball.
Do you reckon WOW might get the 800 metres if we send him back to Toby?
